SpaceCorp is a fast-playing board game in which up to four players explore and develop outer space over three eras. Each player controls an Earth-based enterprise seeking profit by driving the expansion of humanity into the Solar System and beyond. Players earn profit from exploration discoveries, by conducting production at resource sites, and by completing contracts.

Each era plays out on a different board:

  • The first era, Mariners, covers exploration and development out to Mars
  • In Planeteers, players settle the outer solar system
  • In Starfarers, players send missions to nearby star systems and establish interstellar colonies

The tournament includes two heats. Game length in the heats will be limited to the first two eras, with the winner determined per the SpaceCorp rules for ending play with the Planeteers era.

Sixteen players will advance to the semifinal, using standard tiebreakers. Games in the semifinal and final rounds will cover all three eras.
